    Going far too many directions for an Aggro deck. Also, think of your curve you probably shouldn't have anything over 3 CMC unless this is going to be more of a midrange strategy. While a good thought this seems like a weaker form of Abzan Aggro with no Ana Banana or Dr. Siegemond Rhinoceros.

    I'd cut Vile Aggregate for some bearers of silence. I'm working on a brew similar to this, except mine runs Reality Hemorrhage for early game removal and late game burn it also combo me with Skyscourer and I'd add 4x Unnatural Endurance. It is a combo with Skyscourer as well and can give you that one creature you need to finish off the player playing sweepers.

    This card seems to be in the same place Sphinx's Tutelage was when it was spoiled. And can be another win con in that deck. Any Izzet Mage can see how easy it is to get these in all four zones in standard with startling consistency. Between looting delving and just straight up card draw, this card in a dedicated U/R shell can not only sneak up on people (as you can cast the second one in your hand after looting and exiling another two.) but can probably kill faster and is less disruptable. The only way to disrupt is through counter spells and discard, which is actually just doing half of the work for you. A great card for VETERAN players who enjoy deck building challengers. Not a good card for NEW players or dedicated deck pilots.

    I'm already calling them the "Tango" lands regardless of the popularity of the name. It just sounds the best and doesn't have any phonic or mnemonic overlap with any other cycle of lands, whether they be dual or otherwise.

    I think the interacting with the exile zone will but the mechanic of Eldrazi.. its very alien odd and not something that will want to put on too many cards.

    I'd say it has to be go big or go home with Eldrazi.
    When cast exile half your deck you may cast cards without paying their mana cost.
    something dumb like that.


    You actually make a good point. I could see the Eldrazi having the ability to manipulate exile zones. The Sower plays land from exile zones, another could play instants and sorceries, a third could play creatures and Ulamog could play anything. He was a living kill spell before so it would make sense. Also, he should keep his indestructibility. For old times sake.

    This card LOOKs sweet, but looks can be deceiving. For the same mana cost I can just wipe the board of creatures and call it a day. There's really nothing that special about it. I could see a midrange deck like Abzan playing it but that's even sort of a niche scenario.

    Quote from SphinxP »
    Acolyte of the Inferno seems really good. He'll survive being chumped by anything with 2 or less toughness, will trade with anything with less than 6 toughness (or 7 if renown has triggered), and will be swinging for 4 power at 3 cost a lot of the time.

    He's also an UNCOMMON.

    Looks good for limited. Especially with the XX artifact creature. Play it, kill it, get thopters, bring it back with two +1/+1 counters, kill it again, get two more thopters. God forbid you get turns to give it more counters. Oh the lols! I'd play this in my black/X limited deck with a bunch of kill spells for my opponents fatty boom booms.

    Sweet design. Whether it'll be constructed playable (in any format) remains to be seen. And even if it isn't initially it might get some help in coming sets. Who knows, this this could be the thopterevolution.(pun intended)

    Technically 2 power and 3 toughness for 4 mana. I think I'll take Scrapskin Drake.
